Next, to that Chilean marmalade loving bear, you have to say the most famous bear has to be Winnie The Pooh. Today ahead of Father’s Day this Sunday, Fox Searchlight has released the first (UK) Trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin. The biopic for Pooh creator AA Milne the beloved Children’s author whose young son’s toys (Will Tiltson) that brought us the magical world of Hundred Acre Wood.
Domhnall Gleeson stars as Milne the author behind the magic and next to his son’s toys but also the locations as well as games that familiar to fans. If you enjoyed Finding Neverland, this one will go down a treat, it’s heartwarming, nostalgic most of all emotive. Older fans of Pooh Bear will love this as many of the areas covered in the movie little too grown up (not in a crude way) for the younger fans.If you really want to see more there is a live-action Christopher Robin live action spin-off in the works starring Ewan McGregor.
